You probably thought that this was going to be the cover art for the new Arcade Fire album:
You would be correct. But you would also be incorrect - as it's not the only album cover that will feature for the Canadian collective's The Suburbs, according to various reports (via MBV Music). Those reports state that there will be a total of EIGHT alternative covers (or seven alternative if you're being picky) designed for the album, as listed by the Alternative Distribution Alliance, who distribute the album to retailers. Interesting.
The Suburbs - the follow-up to 2007's Neon Bible and the band's third full-length in total, will be released on August 2 in the UK and August 3 in the US. Click here to listen to some of the tracks and here to listen to some more. On Pitchfork.
